What is a dream wedding for you? This is quite a personal question as couples have divergent personalities, choices and cultural backgrounds. Let's all admit the fact that looking on various weddings and different wedding theme really holds our interest - each is special and truly one-of-a-kind. Beach weddings where the newlyweds tiptoe on the alabaster-coloured sand, with footprints outlining the shimmering shore under the vibrant rays of the sun. A garden wedding where the bride, groom and the people close to their hearts are enveloped by the lush plants and burgeoning flowers. A relaxed yet charming barn wedding with that laidback rustic touch, stirring nostalgic emotions towards everyone. There's truly an endless way of celebrating the union of two people who are in love with each other.


But not every wedding could integrate charity as incredible as this Turkish couple.

Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat, may have won the century's "Most Charitable Wedding" title, or may even bag the "Wedding with the Most Number of Guests" award. The compassionate couple has invited around 4,000 Syrian refugees to their wedding which was held in the city of Kilis Turkey - a city close to the border of Syria.


With more than 3 million refugees going to Syria's neighbouring countries and over 6 million Syrians who were forced to leave their homes at the height of the conflict, Turkey has welcomed about 2 million Syrian refugees. The crisis and the Syrians’ plight during the civil war is known globally, touching the hearts of people worldwide, and the situation has moved the groom's father, Ali Üzümcüoğlu to come up with an idea of sharing his son and daughter-in-law's wedding with the Syrian refugees. It was a bit overwhelming for the bride when the groom initially proposed the idea, but eventually, her altruism and sympathy prevailed.

The generous couple happily served the foods on the huge trucks which were provided by Kimse Yok Mu, international non-profit humanitarian aid and development organization based in Turkey. Wearing an exquisite bridal makeup that prettily accentuated her delicate features, the gorgeous bride, Esra was also dressed in a white wedding gown with long sleeves, which has an intricate and tasteful style. A classy tiara that sits on her headdress completed her elegant overall look. Fethullah on the other hand, looked attractive in his tuxedo, in a black and white ensemble.


With this couple's benevolence, they were able to successfully attain happiness beyond simply achieving a dream wedding. They may have opted for a lavish celebration all for themselves, their friends and families, but they have sacrificed that conventional practice in exchange of making over 4000 hearts truly joyful on their wedding. What a noble way to celebrate the very first day of their union!  Their act of genuine kindness is an inspiration to everyone, that no matter how small or big of an effort you exert, helping others provides an incredible bliss and sense of satisfaction.


Fethullah and Esra isn't just a lovely couple, their big hearts and compassion radiate with them, and the air of fulfillment and contentment that emanates from them and their wedding theme thru making thousands of people smile on their special day is what makes them even more beautiful - inside out.
